I don't think we can ever get back to the person we were before. Our experiences shape who we are and who we become. I know that I will get through this and be well again (at least I try to know it), but I also realize I will never forget this hell. I am hopeful that it will make me a BETTER person but oviously not the SAME person. I don't ever want to stay the same anyways. I want to keep evolving and improving. At least that is how I feel on a decent day... other days I don't care if I am a better person I just want to feel better now!
